Hmm, so in places they can't gentrify anything cause they have no buildings to gentrify, they build already gentrified buildings from the ground up. Interesting.

I find the rear of the building to be the most interesting aspect. The "filled-in windows" do look tacky, but it's a fascinating approach to making a windowless rear wall look interesting, yet noninvasive. I wonder what the people who have no special interest in architecture think of such architectural cheating, though ("Why the hell would these bozos make windows there just to lay them over with bricks? Did they want to make the back side all nice and pretty but then they realized that kitchens don't need windows, so they did a sloppy job of filling them in? Damn, these architects need to think before they build, not the other way around.")
